Petty Harbour, NL
The Petty Harbour Mini Aquarium is a seasonal catch-and-release aquarium located just 15 minutes outside of St. John’s in the small fishing village of Petty Harbour, Newfoundland and Labrador. Located in what was once a cod-filleting plant, the Mini Aquarium houses multiple exhibits which are home to local marine life throughout the summer months, allowing visitors to explore and learn about Newfoundland’s local marine species.
Visitors young and old can view the ocean at eye level with the hands-on touch tank exhibits, or through one-on-one scientific interpretations, daily programs, and so much more! The animals at the aquarium are collected by scientific divers in May and June, and then returned to the ocean at the end of the summer in true Newfoundland style: with a big party on the beach!
